Beauty Tips

Spring time is all about the glow! A major trend at the moment for Spring makeup is refreshed and dewy looking skin. Other than skincare, you can achieve this look with great makeup choices. Today, I will be sharing with you 5 spring makeup essentials that you need in your makeup bag this season.

Nude/Pink Eye Palette | Pink and neutral eye shadow looks good on any eye color and they are the perfect colors for spring. Any palette that has more nude shades is great for spring so you can play around with other parts of your makeup and keep the eyes fresh. The Tarte Tartelette Palette ($21) has the perfect shades for a day to night look. If you are looking for a cheaper option the Physicians Formula Palette ($12) has great shimmery colors.

tinted moisturizer

Tinted Moisturizer (BB Cream) | Using a lighter base on your face will let your skin breathe as the weather gets warmer. Using a BB cream can still get you great coverage along with skin benefits. The Smashbox Photo Finish Tinted Moisturizer ($39) is highly raved about. I also love the Loreal Magic BB Cream ($11) from the drugstore.

Cream/Gelee Blush | To give you a soft and natural flush to the cheeks non-powdery blushes are great. They are easy to blend and you can easily add more product to reach your desired pigment. I haven’t heard much about the Josie Maran Gelee Blushes ($22) but, have tried a sample myself and loved it. It is very different from most products as it is like the consistency of jello. Both the cream and gelee blush can be used on the lips for a stain also.

tanner moisturizer

Gradual Tanner Moisturizer This product is not makeup for your face, but for your body. Every time I get out of the shower I love using the Jergens Gradual Tan Moisturizer ($10). This product gives you a natural looking glow after using it for about a week. To get you ready for shorts and even summer, I would strongly recommend you use this every day to every other day. If you want to add color to your face Jergens also has a tanner for the face. I would be light handed with this because you don’t want to over tan your face.

Spring Makeup Essentials

Highlighter | At last, the glowy skin essential — highlighter. My favorite type of highlighter for the spring is a champagne shade. The Balm’s Mary-Lou Manizer ($24) is the perfect shade to balance out your blush and bronzer. You can also use this on your lids for a brightening effect.
